4 WAYS TO PREVENT PREGNANCY GINGIVITIS

It is important for pregnant women to pay attention to their dental health and take measures to prevent the development of oral conditions such as gingivitis.

Practice good oral hygiene

They should be advised to brush their teeth at least twice a day. A small-headed soft toothbrush is best. The toothbrush should be regularly replaced, at least every three months. It is also recommended to floss daily, as this helps to reach the plaque between the grooves between the teeth that is not usually removed by brushing alone.Taking the extra time is well worth your effort. You may even be able to reverse the damage and inflammation done to your teeth and gums by putting consistent brushing and flossing habits into place.
